    Food was good but service was a mess. Had to ask a few times for water and other tables didn’t receive their food while tables that arrived after received their food. They were ill equipped to handle the Valentine’s Day rush crowd. They need to improve their operations and train their staff better, maybe hire additional people to flex up during busy times. I I’ll not go there again

    We made a reservation for an early Anniversary/Valentine's Day dinner to avoid the crowds on the 14th. The place was not very busy at 7pm, when we arrived. We were seated right away and ordered, since my husband was hungry. We started with the samosas, which were a pure delight: crispy and filled with the right amount of potato and seasonings. We ordered a few more items to share: the tandoori platter, which featured grilled lamb, chicken and shrimp. All the meats were delicious, but a bit overdone. The dosa, filled with potato and onion, was light and crisp and the perfect size to share. We also ordered garlic naan, which was lighter and crunchier than I was used to, more like a large pakora, but it was still delicious, because, well, it's naan. We declined dessert because we were so full from dinner. But we will definitely be back to sample other dishes from Electric Karma.

    Used to be my local go-to Indian restaurant when I lived in the neighborhood. My friends were going to a show nearbyish and are vegan so I thought of this place. It was still good and everyone enjoyed their meals. Lots of vegan options which was helpful. Parking can be challenging so I recommend leaving time to drive around.

    We were underwhelmed. It was a Monday night so we’re not sure whether some staff were off. But the food was ok. Service was adequate, thought they brought a wrong dish. The Naan bruschetta was bizarre. Little creativity.

    So glad we finally tried this place! We'd been talking about going to Electric Karma for a while and definitely weren't disappointed. The service and beverages were great. The server who helped us was friendly and the food came out quickly and was delicious. The spicy curry I had was especially good. We'll be back!

    Freezing cold inside the restaurant. They supposedly turned their off in the heat up a couple of times, but we were all very cold. The food was very good. The service was very slow to start but then good

    When we arrived for dinner around 5:30 we were the only ones in the place. The waiter seemed friendly, attentive, and was ready to take our order. Then someone else came and the service slowed down and the waiter stopped tending to us even though there were just two tables seated. Then after 30 minutes and a few more filled seats we asked about our food after seeing them serve the other tables. The wait went on and on and meanwhile other tables were being served. Then after we stopped another employee they asked us to repeat the order and said our new waiter is new, which is why the order was messed up but he seemed to be doing just fine with everyone else. Then 20 minutes later they brought out the wrong dish! No apology just excuses. They finally brought the right dish but again no apology or accountability for the inattentive service. The food was standard Indian Cuisine, good but not worth the wait and frustration. Haven’t been here in years but now remember why as I now recall that the service was atrocious the last time too. Likely won’t go back again and can’t recommend dining here, even with the food being decent. Maybe order out if you wish but I won’t be bothering with them.

    Lovely place, lovely staff. The food is tasty -- you just have to remember to ask for spicy if that's what you prefer. The combo dinners are a great deal. I'm a fan of their soups and the Chicken Tikka BBQ. I also find the atmosphere very pleasant -- full of positivity.

    It was our first time to the restaurant. We enjoyed all the food, the service was great and we had a seat by the window. We ate super early to catch a show, so we had the restaurant with only a few other diners. Great selection of beer to go with the food. We choose mild spice, but will do medium next time. Will definitely be back.

    We were greeted promptly and given a table in the back where you sit at low tables on cushions. Fun for my daughter, but not that comfy for me. They happily moved us to another regular table. The ambiance was fun, good food and great service.

    Everything about this restaurant is great. It is a neighborhood restaurant whose food is just great, the service is quick and attentive. I have only had Indian food twice and not really into spicy foods, but, there are selections for those who like spicy and those who are "not so much." Stop by and try this restaurant, you won't be disappointed.

    Food has been consistently good and definitely the best and cleanest tasting Indian restaurant in town. Best bet is to order their Karma for 2 bundle (if you’re a group of 2 or more) so you can try all their best sellers.
